That's Government For You

It's one thing to leave the door of your own house unlocked. If someone steals from you, that's really on you. The buffoons running the government leave the door to everyone's house unlocked, and then complain when we install our own deadbolt (i.e. encryption). Then they wonder why we the people consider them an enemy. What would you consider someone who--sometimes unlawfully--collects your private/personal data, and then potentially exposes it to any slacker with enough time on their hands?

The info that makes it to WikiLinks is just the stuff the hacking community thinks might make a difference. Imagine what gets sold off to the highest bidder instead on the dark web. Credit info, medical records, etc...
